The people in the personal care industry are a great bunch. One just answered my call for a donation.

Recently I have become more active as a volunteer and fund raiser for the Special Olympics here in Florida. This is a really good cause.

The Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

We have a fund raising run/walk later this month, where we expect maybe 500 people and we needed some more goodies for the gift bag. I put the word out to a few friends and Miriam Rodriguez at NYX Cosmetics in Los Angeles came through with a very generous donation of a Color Lip Balm, a Single Eye Shadow and a Slim Pencil Eye Liner for each participant. The Special Olympics executives are really happy with the gift and I know the runners will be too.
NYX will be pleased too as it is great public relations for them here in Florida and will raise their profile among a group of caring, responsible and respectful young adults.

For more information about the Special Olympics go to:

If you want a taste of how rewarding the Special Olympics is for everybody involved, send me your email address and I’ll forward to you a very short Flipogram of our latest fund raiser here in Sunny Isles Beach.

A big shout out and thanks to our friends at NYX Cosmetics.

If anybody is interested in volunteering or donating please contact me directly and I will connect you with the right people. We have some great opportunities to volunteer or sponsor events and athletes this year.
